Meet Owney, The Mail Dog

One day in 1888 a little mixed-breed terrier wandered into the post office in Albany, New York. The postal workers there took pity on the poor pup and let him spend the rainy night with a bit of shelter. He curled up on a pile of empty mail bags and went to sleep.

Some accounts present the information on the cat as fact while others admit that there is no real proof that Sam ever existed.
